Large luxury cottages to rent

Many groups, whether families or friends, are opting for large luxury cottages rather than the more conventional choice of a hotel or a couple of holiday homes for a short break or longer stay together. Finding large luxury cottages to rent together, whether for a birthday, anniversary, a festive break at Christmas and New Year, or just spending quality time together, can make these occasions truly memorable.

Luxury coastal cottages

As an island nation, surrounded by seas and ocean, it comes as no surprise that many people are drawn to our beautiful coastline. A seaside holiday is a great British tradition and it is easy to see why luxury cottages by the sea are so popular. In complete contrast some of our luxury coastal cottages can be found along stretches of dramatic, wild coastline where you can enjoy bracing walks on the beach or over a headland. Click here
